Conversation worksheet. Students are presented with 12 characters and must choose only 5 to take with them to a new planet to restart humanity. Then they must compromise with their partner to choose 5, and then again in a group of 4. (Pyramid discussion). Each character has positive and negative points, such as the racist farmer/hunter, or the violent chemist. Written by a native English speaker and useful for multiple purposes (descriptions, law and order, civilisation, debate techniques, suggestions, opinions, comparative adjectives, superlatives etc.) Contains instructions and also a possible follow-up activity in which students role-play being on a damaged hot-air balloon approaching a desert island, and students must argue to their peers why they will be useful. Then there is a vote on who will be cast into the ocean!
